Picture Of The Day : Brighouse Gut

I took this photograph, I guess it must have been about 45 years ago. But where is it? I've tried all the obvious stuff like enlarging the road sign but there is not enough clarity to get anything useful. The only clue I can make out is the beer wagon in the centre of the picture which is a Toby wagon, so that means that it is more likely to be "up north". I have a gut feeling it might be Brighouse, but I can't find any firm evidence, nor can I recognise any of the buildings.

  1. The building with the flag is now (and probably was then) Blakeborough Social Club. A google maps view is here: http://goo.gl/maps/9QCb7. There's currently an old postcard of a similar view on ebay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brighouse-Bradford-Rd-Liberal-Club-Tram-by-Lilywhite-/250847703382?pt=UK_Collectables_Postcards_MJ&hash=item3a67b03156 at which time it was the liberal club.
